Decarbonization Strategy and GHG Reduction Target

Towards Net-Zero Emissions by 2050

On November 6, 2023, NYK announced the "NYK Group Decarbonization Story" in which we established decarbonization strategies and GHG reduction targets towards 2050. We are committed to reducing the GHG emissions of the entire NYK Group in the pursuit of decarbonized society.

Our achievement of GHG reduction results and latest goals are as follows.

Net Zero Achievement Scenario

  1. *1SBT (Science Based Targets)
    Science-based GHG reduction targets in line with Paris Agreement goals.

*2 Environmental management indicators

This indicators are the reduction targets that were in place from 2018 to 2023. As we have switched to a total volume target from October 2023, they serve as reference values.

Type of Vessel Environmental management indicator
(Unit: g-CO2e/ton-km)
Fiscal Year 2015 Fiscal Year 2016 Fiscal Year 2017 Fiscal Year 2018 Fiscal Year 2019 Fiscal Year 2020 Fiscal Year 2021 Fiscal Year 2022
Scope1 (Ships + Aircraft) 6.36 6.33 6.26 6.20 6.18 6.11 6.53 6.10
  • *CO2 emissions per ton-kilometer (base year fiscal 2015)
  • *The emission data for fiscal 2021 was recalculated after a partial review of the scope. The figures were revised after recalculating the relevant environmental management indicators based on updated figures certified by a third party.

Our indicator, which is based on IMO*3 guidelines, determines GHG emissions per unit of vessel-transport work.
